So… I’ve turned to other chat options, such as Rocket.chat and others, but this seems to get all the features I like, and I was wondering if this would be a good fit for mage.party. I mean, that domain isn’t resolving on the web, and according to mod_conversejs - Prosody Community Modules I can turn it on with one line in the config (but I’d probably want to tweak it still!).

Interesting, ne?

Mozilla switched over to Riot/matrix recently, but with the abject failure of video chat to be satisfying in any meangingful way during “social distancing”, I’m really liking jabber and mumble. Ahem, mumble.

So, mages: should be make this thing be on the web, and maybe open it up a bit? Invite friends, show them what can be, and point them to a website for it? :sunglasses:
